FAQ's

Download the ISR 14 Contestants Manual and read through it.  Next, do a little searching on the Web and social media.  We’ve been at this for twenty-seven years, so there’s plenty of information out there. Finally, contact the ISR Executive Race Director, Mr. Kurt Yankaskas at ISR.Executive.Director@internationalsubmarineraces.org or the President of the Foundation for Underwater Research and Education,  Mr. Charlie Behrle at FURE.President@internationalsubmarineraces.org and they’ll get you the information you’re looking for.

Yes we will be.  The on-line registration makes it efficient for us to create the master list of contestants and visitors and submit it to the US Navy so they can clear us for entry to the race venue.  Our paperwork forms are required so that we have your information available to us in case of emergency, and for insurance purposes.  It may seem complicated, but it’s what we need.  The information for Team Registration and for individual registration is located on the website: www.internationalsubmarineraces.org and in the ISR 14 Contestants Manual.

Certainly, please do.  While many people successfully dive with the kinds of challenges you mention, the International Submarine Races are a little different than recreational diving for two reasons.  First, diving inside a submarine or support diving outside the submarine has added physical demands over most recreational diving activities and second, the use of this special US Navy facility requires the ISR Dive staff to be especially cautious to retain the incredible safety record we have had for over twenty years.  It’s better to discuss your circumstances before the race and not to be disappointed at the race.  Please contact the ISR Dive Supervisor, Mr. Vin Malkoski at Dive.Supervisor@internationalsubmarineraces.org.

You can guess our answer.  You’ve worked hard for two years getting ready to race.  We’ve worked hard getting the race ready for you and the US Navy was graciously decided to let us hold the race in their incredible facility again.  Register your team and individuals according to the deadlines on the website and Contestants Manual, pay for Registration fees on time, and come to the Race on Sunday and start getting ready.  We’ll get you in the water as fast as we can and as fast as you’re ready.
